UPDATE: According to Ken Rosenthal, the Mets are on the verge of getting Conine for two low-level minor leaguers.
According to Ben Shpigel of the New York Times, the Mets might consider trading for Reds outfielder Jeff Conine. The need was created when Damion Easley endured a Grade 3 ankle sprain.
Conine, 41, has about $480K left on his contract this year. He’s known to have cleared waivers, and I’m sure he can be had for a song.
